‘Peace be with you’ (Jn 20:19): Journeying from Easter to Pentecost in the midst of Covid-19′

For many of us, the locked room of Jesus’ disciples has become a daily reality. Like them, we live with a combination of fear and hope, grief and new beginnings, confusion and trust.  

Our Christian faith tells us that the resurrection is not the destination but the beginning of a new journey. But how does our Easter Story speak to our ‘new normal’ of living in a world shaped by Covid-19 and the creating of “new heaven and a new earth”? (Is. 65:17)

Gráinne Doherty is currently working freelance in pastoral ministry and facilitation while completing her doctoral studies in theology. Prior to working freelance, Gráinne was part of the Theology department in All Hallows College (Dublin) for many years, while also working in pastoral leadership at both parish and diocesan level – most recently as Director for Pastoral Development in the Raphoe Diocese. Her recent Veritas publication “Joy of Love: A Family Perspective” (2018) is a book of spiritual reflections and prayers which situates the writings of Pope Francis in the reality of family experience today.

You will need to book in advance in order to participate. You can obtain further information and complete your booking by emailing ceo@mountstannes.com
